|Background/Justification||Racism and racial segregation are a common phenomenon in many parts of the world. Although much has changed over time in the boxing realm, there is a possibility that racism still exists in America’s boxing. In fact, boxing in America in the 1950s onwards has been used as a political weapon to break the barrier of racism and the limitations the boxers have confronted. Understanding the topic of racism in boxing is key to eliminating the vices that exist in other sporting activities. Various questions that surround this sport activity have been raised including;
